    XBMC Windowed Mode

    Hi, I currently use two monitors with nvidia twinview on ubuntu. I recently installed XBMC to use it as a media center but XBMC starts in full screen mode. This would be fine but it takes p both the screens and the image is horribly distorted.

    I want to run XBMC in windowed mode and force fullscreen through the gnome options which will allow it to only use one screen.

    Unfortunately after a long time searching through the settings and googling I cant find out how to run XBMC Linux in windowed mode (windows has this option on the start menu) Any help would be great.

    Thanks.

    What key? I have the same issue. XBMC runs in fullscreen but I want it to run windowed so I can test some things in real time.

    press the the "\" key on your keyboard to make it windowed.

    Yup, that'll work.

    You could also go to the system settings and choose the output to be windowed, and I think you can set the resolution as well.
